Description

Part of Shorts Program 4: Animate Me

Inspired by the handmade films of Stan Brakhage and others before him, the textures and colors of this piece were made by hand-coloring 16mm film. These colorful, frenetic textures were then matted digitally with simple animated shapes and archival photographs. The resulting dreamlike visions of shorelines and seascapes tell of solitude, soulmates and transformation. As so often happens in dreams, the story has its own impossible logic; the dream has its own laws to govern its universe. It is only upon waking that the surreal nature of the narrative becomes apparent.
